Micah Spangler
Guest Biography:
Micah Spangler was a Romney Victory Field Director in 2012, working with then-Gov. Romney’s presidential campaign and the Republican National Committee to lead voter mobilization efforts in South Florida.  

Spangler recently made news with the launch of “Romney Alumni for Biden”—a diverse collection of more than 40 Romney campaign veterans that decided to put country before party and publicly endorse Joe Biden for president. 

Their statement, warning that “four more years of a Trump presidency will morally bankrupt this country, irreparably damage our democracy and permanently transform the Republican Party into a toxic personality cult,” has since appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, Fox, CBS, Newsweek, Forbes and NPR.

Bruce Baker
Guest Occupation: Former Westminster City Council member
Guest Biography:

I grew up in the Denver Metro Area, graduated from Lakewood High School, graduated from the University of Colorado with a degree in Pharmacy and a commission as a Second Lieutenant in the Infantry.​  After the Army I spent over three decades as a Retail Pharmacist.  I'm married, have 3 children and 4 grandchildren.  I served on City Council from 2013 to 2017.  I have shared my views on the path to better government widely; in several opinion articles, a research  paper and many letters to the editor in local papers.  I consider candidates that refuse to give specific, detailed answers to questions about what they want of accomplish as typical politicians, unhelpful to voters and demeaning to the election process.  Good Government needs openness and transparency, especially in the consideration process.   Thru my actions I have worked toward that end.

Elect Bruce Baker to Westminster City Council

I will keep Westminster green by voting to lower the water rates so we can afford to water our landscapes

I will keep Westminster less crowded by honoring the intent of our Open Space Tax and Comprehensive Plan and not increasing housing densities.

I will keep Westminster a good place to live by refocusing the attention of Council on the people that live here TODAY instead of wasting millions of dollars on becoming "the next urban center of the Colorado Front Range.

I will end the ridiculous use of 'consultants' for jobs that should be done by city staff.

The members of City Council should be the stewards of city assets and should use those assets to allow the people of Westminster make their homes, neighborhoods and businesses attractive, inviting places.

The harmful choice that council has made, like the excessive water rates or jamming in thousands of apartments, will harm our homes, neighborhoods and businesses.

When I served on council from 2013 to 2017, I fought for the needs of the people of Westminster and thrifty, smart, efficient, responsive government.  I have the passion, experience and knowledge to reverse the harmful choices that have been made by council.  It is time we return the mission of council to serving the people rather than the ridiculous fantasies and corrupt deals that are wasting our tax dollars.

Guest Occupation: Singer and Songwriter
Guest Biography:


MYOA is a Singer/Songwriter whose musical journey has catapulted her from the beautiful coast of West Africa to the Queen’s land in England UK, and finally to the immensely diverse and invigorating music scene of the USA. 

In the words of Myoa, which means “God brings joy,” “I was created to inspire and impact certain truths and to give joy to people who listen to my music.” The eldest of three, Myoa began singing in school choirs, competitions and concerts as a young child, penning her first song at the age of 9. “I used to organize mini singing concerts with my sisters and write poems on the blackboard in our dining room.” Although her deep-seeded desire for a career in music continued, she opted for a traditional career path and headed off to pursue a college degree.
It was while studying at the University of Plymouth in South West England that she honed her songwriting and keyboard skills and discovered her individuality and purpose. “I spent a lot of my spare time in my room writing music on my keyboard when I wasn’t around the social circle. I became comfortable and confident in who I was and who I wanted to be.” Upon graduation, Myoa pursued a career in Finance and settled into a lifestyle filled with stability and structure, but lacked what she loved most; her music. Feeling there was more to life than the life of number crunching as an accountant, Myoa opted for another path. Resigning from her job, she packed her bags (along with her Master’s Degree & Chartered Certified Qualification in Finance) and decided to explore opportunities to study music in the USA, the sunny, palm tree riddled streets of Los Angeles CA to be exact!
Enrolling at Hollywood California’s heralded Musicians Institute, Myoa dove in head first, learning the art of vocal performance & music production and landing a highly coveted internship at the world’s largest music company, Universal Music Group. The rest is history…
Myoa sees greater benefit in creating her own lane in the music business than trying to imitate the rifts and runs of today’s Pop & R&B Superstars. “I can’t be someone that I’m not. My voice and my music come from God and there’s no sense in trying sing songs that don’t speak to me or reflect what’s in my soul.” Often compared to the likes of Sade, Basia and Des’ree both of whom enjoyed World Wide acclaim and success.

Co-Produced by Myoa & some other acclaimed Producers. Myoa, believes that recording her first album, Beautiful Journey, “validates all my hard work as an independent artist.”
Sure the business is changing, but Myoa loves to take risks. “Music has been embedded in me and so it’s hard for me to imagine life without listening to music, singing or writing. I usually tell myself to keep going; it will all be worth it. I call it faith, and that’s what drives me.”
Currently residing in Houston Texas and quickly amassing a local following, Myoa performs live with her band at Hip Trendy Intimate venues.

She Performed at the 2017 Pepsi Super Bowl Event Private Party in Houston.

Guest Occupation: Singer, songwriter, musician, performer and record producer from Armenia: Internet sensation Julia Roberts look-alike
Guest Biography:

A  R  P  I

A  L  T  O








Arpine Mikaeli Ter-Petrosyan (born on September 30, 1990), known professionally as Arpi Alto, is a singer, songwriter, musician, performer and record producer from Armenia. She was born in the Armenian capital Yerevan on September 30, 1990, into a family of artists and musicians. Her mother, Anahit Ter Petrosyan, is a musician, jazz artist, music teacher and composer.

Her father, Mikayel Ter Petrosyan, is a sculptor, painter, visual artist, and expert in hand-made carpets. The roots of Arpi’s artistic inclinations lie with her family, and especially her maternal grandmother. Arpi credits her maternal grandmother for creating a colorful and magical fantasy world for Arpi to help cope with war, death, deprivation, and economic hardship in Armenia. Arpi was exposed from a young age to a varied and eclectic mix of musical influences, ranging from traditional Armenian folk songs and classical music to jazz and pop.

Arpi’s formal musical education began in 2000, when she started attending music school. In 2010, at the age of 20, she joined the Armenian State Pedagogical University in Yerevan to study music and received her formal education as a pianist. She graduated with a master’s degree in 2016.

It was during the years of her musical education that Arpi’s unique voice began to draw attention. Arpi’s voice is described as contralto, which is the lowest female voice and lends itself very well to musical categories like classical and jazz.

Arpi’s professional career began in 2011, when she joined the Geghard Vocal Ensemble under the direction of Mher Navoyan and with Anahit Papoyan as conductor. The ensemble has traveled extensively for concerts in Germany, Austria, Finland, France, Czech Republic, Belarus, Poland, Italy, Belgium, Lebanon, Russia, and Sweden. The ensemble has also released three albums:” Armenian Music” (2002), “Armenian Altar” (2005), and “Mystery Deep” (2013). Apri Alto performed with the Geghard Ensemble until 2017. 2013-present: Armenian National Academic State Opera and Ballet Theater In 2013 Apri joined the Armenian National Academic State Opera and Ballet Theatre named after Alexander Spendaryan under the artistic direction and conductorship of Constantine Orbelian.

In the winter of 2019/2020 Arpi began experimenting with solo work outside the framework of musical ensembles, especially jazz and bossa nova classics and Armenian traditional folk songs. In early 2020 Arpi released covers of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”, Lana del Rey’s “Doin’ Time”, “What a Difference a Day Makes”, and “The Way You Look Tonight”.

The coronavirus outbreak in the Spring of 2020 gave Arpi the opportunity to expand her solo efforts with more jazz standards and covers of popular classics. The breakthrough came when Arpi’s cover of the Brazilian bossa nova classic “The Girl From Ipanema” (Garota de Ipanema) went viral and boosted Arpi’s fast-growing worldwide audience. After the success of “The Girl From Ipanema”, Arpi launched an indie record company Ginosi Music with cousin Areg Ginosian and his partner Amoor David Avakian. “The Girl From Ipanema” was followed by renditions of “Happy Happy Birthday Baby”, “Moon River”, and “Over the Rainbow”. Personal Life Arpi lives in the Armenian capital Yerevan with her husband and son.

Arpi has become an internet sensation especially on You Tube. She has an uncanny resemblance to a young Julia Roberts, especially in the Pretty Woman movie and has been mistakenly identified as Julia Roberts older daughter.

In 1969, he studied liberal arts at Wesley College in Dover, Delaware, where he received an associate’s degree. He then spent a semester in Kentucky studying rural poverty in Appalachia. He went on to receive a bachelor’s degree in history from Delaware State College in 1973. Since then, he has done some work toward a Masters at Loyola College in Baltimore.

Throughout his career, Wayne has taught American History, Government, and Civics in New Jersey, Vermont, and for eight years at Kent County High School in Worton, Maryland.

Wayne and his family spent part of 1986 living in the Idaho wilderness where he worked for the Forest Service in the Bitterroot National Forest.
